I love this part:
Instead of secretly plundering the game, he decided to go to the Ontario Lottery and Gaming Corporation. Srivastava thought its top officials might want to know about his discovery. Who knows, maybe they’d even hire him to give them statistical advice. “People often assume that I must be some extremely moral person because I didn’t take advantage of the lottery,” he says. “I can assure you that that’s not the case. I’d simply done the math and concluded that beating the game wasn’t worth my time.”
I thought that part was really funny, too. More for the fact that he wanted to make sure that everybody knew he was "immoral" but that it just wasn't worth the effort.
Reminds me of a clip from a Futurama episode that went something like this:
Some Guy: "If I wasn't so lazy I'd punch your lights out!"Fry: "But you are lazy, right?"
Some Guy: "Oh, don't get me started!"
